Workshop Partnering with Blogging Concentrated

Extra Fee $20 with a BConnected 1 or 2 Day Pass/$60 Workshop only (includes a snack):

Sunday 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Dan R Morris and Rachel Martin of Blogging Concentrated are going to lead an amazing 3 hour workshop on SEO and Social Engagement!

SEO: In this session we share – using down to earth and relatable answers – how to use SEO to create traffic and results. We start by sharing the research involved, move to how to skillfully craft engaging content and then end demonstrating how to measure results using various tools.

Social Engagement: Does your page reach all of those who clicked or liked it? Are you looking for better engagement and reach? So often social is looked at as simply the platforms — Facebook, Youtube, and Instagram —  and how to manipulate them. However, in this talk, we look beyond the platforms and study the unique power of the written word, video and images that social uses to drive traffic, increases brand awareness and generate revenue.
